Expanding Your Network Through PartnersConnect

Do you want to be the first to know about Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) and other Partners activities?  Then join the Partners of the Americas (Partners) network, PartnersConnect, and help us achieve our mission to “connect, serve, and change lives”. 

Partners of the Americas has one of the largest and longest-standing networks of individuals and organizations in the Americas and has been implementing Farmer-to-Farmer and other agricultural programming since 1991.  In that time, Partners has built an impressive network of agricultural specialists, higher education institutions, and receiving organizations across the hemisphere.  By joining PartnersConnect, you become part of a network that works to combat hunger and build livelihoods. Partners’ Farmer-to-Farmer program is collaborating with PartnersConnect to offer specific benefits to both friend and partner members. PartnersConnect memberships are also not just for U.S.-based organizations. LaSalle University in Bogotá, Colombia is an example of a PartnersConnect  Organization Partner member and is working with Farmer-to-Farmer to develop a strategic plan to sponsor F2F volunteers to complete assignments in animal welfare, plant disease control, and citrus production.

PartnersConnect has both individual and organization level memberships that include becoming a ‘Friend’ or ‘Partner’.  The Individual Friend membership is free and provides several benefits that include opportunities to connect to the Americas through the Partners’ Directory, events, and volunteering opportunities.  Organization-level ‘Friends’ collaborate with Partners to develop custom opportunities for their communities. The Individual Partner membership and the Organization Partner membership are paid memberships that include additional benefits. 

If you are one of the thousands of individuals and organizations that have received special value from Partners in the past, we encourage you to join PartnersConnect! Meet fellow F2F volunteers, learn about new opportunities, and expand your network!
